Rand Paul is firing his campaign manager
Trouble in repeal-civil-rights paradise?
Kentucky senatorial candidate Rand Paul said Tuesday he’s planning a campaign staff shake-up a week after a round of interviews in which he dismayed fellow Republicans by discussing his views on racial segregation.
Campaign manager David Adams, a Republican strategist and former blogger who has been with the campaign since it began, will remain, but perhaps in a different role, Paul said.
Obviously, someone is starting to get involved in Rand Paul’s campaign who isn’t a teabagger. My guess is the GOP is starting to think, If we want to hold onto this seat, we need to control this crazy fuck.
And with publicity like this, it’s no wonder:
His earlier comments questioning the Civil Rights Act sparked a protest outside the state Republican Party headquarters on Saturday. Some 30 demonstrators, one carrying a placard declaring “Rand The Klan’s Man,” stood quietly on a street corner across Capitol Avenue from a Republican rally where GOP loyalists had gathered to show unity heading into this fall’s general election.
So the function that returns nothing of value for the GOP, RndPaul(), continues to execute on all platforms…but damn is it buggy.
